CPAE Opening Session

Social Movements and Adult Education: Transformative Learning, Policy Development, and Research

Plenary Session Description: Dr. Holst will outline the major challenges social movements pose for adult education practitioners, participants, and scholars. Highlighting the importance of such movements, he will assist our understanding of the historical moment(s) in which we are currently engaged, and outline elements of a vision for change. Observing that a major vehicle for policy initiatives have been and continue to be social movements, he argues that the changing nature, status, and diversity of movements today can and should be both incubators for policy initiatives and major forces for policy implementation.
